Go Owls!


Lissan, Martin

“FAU, FAU, FAU,” was the chant that roared through the stadium like a thunderstorm after the 4th quarter. The Owls crushed Western Kentucky with the final touchdown ending the clock winning 45 – 38.

The day began at 7:30 a.m. in the student parking lot here at Santaluces with Ms. Tanguay, Ms. Monahan and many other faculty members verifying which students were eligible to get on a bus. Each student needed to have an ID and registration voucher, which was provided by the school. If not, they were immediately sent home.

Once everything was all sorted out, the seven school buses set out for the expo. Other schools from all around the Palm Beach School District also came to the event, including John I Leonard, Village Academy, Suncoast and Royal Palm.

With over 20 booths set up surrounding the courtyard, there was a plethora of options appealing to a wide range of interests, for instance, Marine Biology, Nursing and Criminal Justice. There were also booths providing information about student life, fraternity and sororities, homecoming week, a tour of the dorm rooms and a live performance from the band which kept everyone engaged.

“It was such a great experience,” said senior Ashnide Jean-Baptise. “I’ll never forget it.”

The expo was an amazing experience filled with laughter and exuberant screams, however it was also awake up call for most students, the time to apply is now.
